Settling In

The hubby, hounds, and I are settling in and falling in love with our new home.
It has been exhausting working on two houses. So much painting, yard work, unpacking, cleaning, and so on. The list seemed endless there for awhile.
But things have finally slowed down a bit.  There is still much to do, but less pressure to be done by a deadline. Our old house is just about ready for a renter and we have already found a tenant who is moving in August 15th.
The hounds did not miss a beat and adjusted to the new surroundings.  They are so well traveled that sleeping in a new place is pretty regular and normal to them.
Maddie seems to love the yard. Eventually, we plan to move the fence line back so I can have space for agility, but for now I am only 7 miles from the field at my parents' house so there is not rush to make that change.

Riley seems to think we are staying in a hotel. She is allowed on furniture in hotel rooms and she wasted no time getting comfortable in our bed and on the couch.
We decided to overlook it since she is the oldest, but she will be the last one. My hounds are just so dirty!
There have been a few birthdays.... Riley and Seven turned 9 and 7 on June 28th.  Maddie turned 3 on July 2nd.

All in all, we are doing well!

Congratulations! Everyone looks quite snuggly in their new home. It also has a suitably classy exterior in keeping with your elegant hounds.

Welcome back, glad things are rolling along. I can relate, lots of moves in our military career. Looking forward to more agility hound adventures.

Wow, congratulations! It looks like you've bought a mansion by New Zealand standards :) Great yard for the girls. And well done to Riley for attaining bed sharing status!
